The scholarship
for international university cooperations

BWS plus

BWS plus was designed specifically for universities from Baden-Württemberg. It is part of the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for university students, and supports new and innovative cooperative projects by universities worldwide.

Target audience
Universities from Baden-Württemberg
Projects with a term of 1 to 3 years
Scholarship amount
10,000 to 50,000 euros per year


Projects should serve to build and expand relationships between Baden-Württemberg universities and international universities, or to intensify existing contacts. Each university may submit multiple applications, or multiple universities can work together to submit a single application.

Projects with terms between one and three years can receive funding of between 10,000 and 50,000 euros. Institutions can apply for scholarship and project funds. Purely research-focused projects cannot be funded.

Interested universities can apply for the BWS plus once per year. Applications are always due by 28 February. The decisions will be announced approx. four months after the application deadline. Baden-Württemberg universities that take part in the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for university students can participate in the BWS plus award process.


Applications are submitted via the BWS-World portal. Applications cannot be submitted directly to the Baden-Württemberg Foundation.
